Staff at a Doncaster hospice appeal are making a plea for volunteers to help with a summer fundraising cycling event.

The St John’s Hospice Cycle Sportive will take place on Sunday, July 5 and plans are currently being firmed up for the day. The event covers two routes - a 65 mile one and a 100 mile route - starting out from St Catherine’s House, at Woodfield Park, Balby and stretching out to Crowle, Snaith and the Dearne Valley. It will run between 7.45am and 5pm, but volunteers can donate as much or as little of their time as they want.

Mel Hewitt, hospice community fundraiser, said: “This was a fantastic event last year. If you could spare a couple of hours to help on food stations, signing the cyclists in or putting up signs the day before, the hospice appeal team want to hear from you.”
